Chris Evans will take a break from acting after his Marvel contract is up
This could put a kink in Marvel's plans for future films. In an interview with Glamour, Chris Evans says he wants to a break from acting after his Marvel contract ends. Evans originally signed a multi-picture deal with the studio, and it will end once he completes work on THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON.
"I think when I'm done with this Marvel contract, I'll take a little break from acting. With acting, you're one piece in a very big puzzle. It's like you helped buy a gift but you don't know what the gift is, so you come back and see the movie. Sometimes it's nice, sometimes it's tragic. This process [directing], you're involved in every single decision. If I hadn't done it, I'd be really kicking myself. At the time, it was a daunting task for a number of reasons, but in hindsight it was the right move"
Chris Evans also talked a little about how Captain America is different from other superheroes, like Batman or Hulk.
"He doesn't have demons. He's not Batman, he doesn't struggle with inner turmoil. The nature of this character is that he puts himself last and helps the common good. So he could easily slip into a world of boredom. The blessing and curse of Captain America is that he doesn't have that fancy an ability. He doesn't live in another world, or turn green. He doesn't have bells and whistles, he doesn't shoot missiles. He punches and kicks."
It's been rumored a third Captain America film will be part of Marvel's Phase 3 films, however nothing has been confirmed yet. Chris Evans says it's just a little break, so maybe this won't have any impact at all on Marvel's plans for their cinematic universe.
But Evans will also have to sign a new deal with Marvel, and maybe he won't be interested in playing Captain America after taking a hiatus. Although Chris Evans doesn't have the same star power as Robert Downey, Jr., he's still a very recognizable actor, and I think it would be a huge loss for Marvel if Evans decides he doesn't want to play the character anymore.
CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER opens on April 4th, 2014.
